Boos for the Big House

 

continued

Toby Citrin spoke up for another overlooked building: "the new
 structure for the U.M. School of Public Health (where I work). The
 architect in this case, Jeff Riley of Centerbrook Architects, took a
 near-impossible task (joining the two very different preexisting
 buildings) with a new structure providing a grand new entrance, a
 'Crossroads Tower' add ing major new space, and various central
 facilities to bring the School together. The results are stunning."

Stephanie Rieke Miller of the U-M Museum of Art appreciated the praise for UMMA's addition, but noted that Roy Strickland needn't have worried that the museum was changing its main entrance. "In fact, the primary entrance to the museum will remain the ceremonial entryway through the porch of historic Alumni Memorial Hall," Miller emailed. "We look forward to welcoming the entire community to a twenty-four-hour open house celebrating the new UMMA from 6 p.m. Saturday, March 28, through 6 p.m. Sunday, March 29, 2009."
